Thanks for the help chap, after my last post and the help from Skippy and Dave I realised it was a combination of factors, mostly was the one you mentioned that for some reason the connection was patchy to say the least, but I also checked in the task bar to note whether it was connected or not.
My main factor is I am running P3D using an Oculus Rift too, and the "add ons" menu only shows I have found when clicking that general area with the mouse and it then shows up, a quirky issue but now I know where to look its ok.
Glad you like Carrier ops, not sure if you know, but if you do like it and fancy some classic Royal Navy action pop over to our site for some freeware carrier (and escorts) to play with: http://www.flyingstations.com/
Thanks for all your help guys.
